Wow! Whau!

The former Whau Lunatic Asylum, as seen on a recent Sunday morning bike ride. Like in the US, there has been a movement here to deinstitutionalise the mentally ill, although the related problem of homelessness is either less or at least less visible.

Today, the facility is mostly occupied by Unitec, which seems to be basically a community college. Probably still a lot of craziness.
